1 I heard the voice of weeping,
The cry came o’er the sea,
It filled my heart with anguish
To know their misery.

Chorus:
Go forth, go forth with weeping,
The gospel tidings bear;
To ev’ry land and nation,
His matchless love declare.

2 They’re dying by the thousands,
In ignorance of God,
They perish for the mercy
Which comes thro’ Jesus’ blood. [Chorus]

3 Where are the hands to help them?
Who’ll volunteer today,
To leave their friends and loved ones,
And help this curse to stay? [Chorus]

4 I heard the faithful workers,
Responding to the call,
The gospel light to carry
All round this sin-cursed ball. [Chorus]
